Liberal / Progressive Reading List - Books to read

What progressive liberal books are you reading or what are you anxious to read?

C-Span2 Book TV is hosting a segment on Thom Hartmann's newest book, SCREWED: The Undeclared War Against the Middle Class -- and what we can do about it, causing it to jump from #631 to #66 in Amazon's top seller list -- though going to an independent bookseller to buy it would be nice too. (Thom spoke at Vox Pop Bookstore and Coffee Shop in Brooklyn, written about in Peace Hugs.) With him that day was author/professor Mark Crispin Miller, who wrote the forward to Thom's book as well as a good companion book, FOOLED AGAIN: How the Right Stole the 2004 Election & Why They'll Steal the Next One Too (Unless We Stop Them) -- currently #1824 in the Amazon list. It will be interesting to see if tonight's 10:30 pm repeat of the Book-TV episode will give them additional bounce.

Other books waiting on my shelf to be finished are David Sirota's Hostile Takeover: How Big Money and Corruption Conquered Our Government--and How We Take It Back as well as Armed Madhouse by Greg Palast, who also spoke at Vox Pop recently -- a great place, btw (a possible outing?). Another one which sounds like it is worth buying and reading is Air America Radio's new tome, Hostile Takeover: How Big Money and Corruption Conquered Our Government--and How We Take It Back.

WQIDC members and friends are welcome to comment on these and to add favorites/suggestions below (and there are some hiding in the Title Link). It is a busy time, but you can always grab a politically progressive book and take it on the subway to enjoy a good read and visibly make a statement. Happy -- and inspiring -- reading!
